Prosecutors have now decided not to proceed with the case because too much time had passed between the alleged offences.
What would the families of Hillsborough victims were told “Sorry, but too much time has passed between now and then.”
But the Catholic Church considers the claims to be so serious that they are conducting their own investigation.
Sorry if I’m sounding cynical but this investigation seems to me as impartial as say a football governing body made up of quite a few of a certain football clubs employees. Hand picking a lawyers firm that is a favourite of that certain football club to investigate that certain football clubs biggest rivals
A report was sent to the Procurator Fiscal.
Prosecutors tried to use the Moorov doctrine to establish a case where the evidence of the individual victims is held to corroborate each other so that the accused can be convicted of all the charges.
But the Crown Office decided they could not proceed using Moorov because of the time lag between the alleged crimes.
Dunfermline Procurator Fiscal Fiona Cameron said the case will remain open for review if other complainers come forward or new evidence surfaces.
“The case remains under the consideration of the Procurator Fiscal.”
This smells of a cover up using a technicality to try and not let this case see the light of day in my opinion.
We can’t allow this to happen an attack on one child in our society is an attack on all our Children.
If you feel angry that our tax payers money is being used to prosecute the likes of stupid photo shopped pictures of football managers but yet not on this most serious of crimes then let them know contact them….

I will leave the last word to one of the brave men that came forward.
“It has been a very difficult time. I can’t understand why the evidence can’t go in front of a judge and jury to let them decide.
“I’ve had to drag up some very bad memories and experiences and it has been very traumatic.
“All I want is justice.”
